8:07am
dan, this is a big debate. this is part performance, part policy. the stakes are always high. but for mitt romney, some are saying it's make or break. and for the president, leading in the polls, it's about not letting his challenger back in the race. president obama is in nevada this morning where he'll spend the next three days in debate camp. reportedly at this posh resort in henderson. and he heads into the debate with the latest gallup tracking poll still showing president obama holding a lead this morning, 6 points. >> this is the ball game for mitt romney. if romney doesn't do well in this debate it will be hard to get back in this race. >> reporter: both candidates have checklists. mitt romney has to avoid appearing detached. his to-do list, the three cs, show compassion, that he's competent and that he can indeed connect the voters. >> on those three cs, that's where he's got to really do
8:08am
well. >> reporter: while they lead in the polls, team obama know that debates can be a game-changer. so the president will have to look strong and forceful, not passive. he needs to avoid appearing irritable or impatient. and don't be long-winded. >> they need him to answer questions short, concise. and to the point. it's more his mannerismsened his style and the way he comes across. >> the pressure is on for this first debate. it could be a huge audience. anywhere between 50 million to 65 million people may tune in to see these two men square off on wednesday night. >> david, thank you. >> great to see you live, david. let's bring in "this week" host george stephanopoulos. also live, for more on this. the goal wednesday night is for each candidate to focus on the other person's weakness. >> exactly. after seeing ron claiborne's piece, it's to avoid a justin bieber moment. i think obviously, there's much
8:09am
more pressure as david said on mitt romney. he's going into this behind. he's got to force an error out of president obama, because he wants to dominate the coverage coming out of the debate so that he can get some momentum. on one hand, he has to be very tough on putting the pressure on president obama. at the same time, he can't appear to be mean. he'll have a tough balancing act on wednesday night. >> how much pressure is he under right now? >> huge, huge. romney is behind in all of the battleground states. this is the last big audience that mitt romney is going to have with about 4 1/2 weeks to go. by the time, we get to the third debate in late october in the battleground states, because of this early voting, a third of the voters with votes already in the can. >> so far, the polls at least show that mitt romney hasn't been able to capitalize on the economy right now. do you think that he could do that with foreign policy? >> that's right.

8:11am
abc's mark greenblatt is at new york's laguardia airport. >> good morning to you, dan. frequent travelers complain about evasive screening procedures. two guns made it on to airplanes this week, has many travelers on edge and worried about their safety. a long line of high-profiled security blunders of tsa came to a head on friday, that when a loaded .38 caliber gun went undetected by screeners. new orleans hornets executive joshua richardson, mistakenly took it with him on a flight from new orleans to newark. in just one day earlier in orlando, officers missed another loaded gun, this time in a firefighter's purse, it made it passed security and all the way on to her plane. those lapses came to light. some in congress worry now about what else is slipping through. >> unfortunately, the reports that i get, it's not just this
8:12am
one weapon, it's hundreds of items every day. but it can't be tolerated. >> reporter: in dallas, the tsa couldn't keep up with this 65-year-old grandma who carried a gun right passed them in january. >> it makes me feel concerned about what's really going on. >> reporter: even a live animal got through in columbus. where the cat was hiding in a checked bag bound my disney world. the tsa has had many successes. confiscating 1100 weapons so far. this year, 29 guns just last week alone. along with various other knives, tasers and explosives. but when it comes to all of the mistakes, some experts think that the tsa's own screeners may need better screening themselves. >> i think it goes back to type of hiring they did. the educational requirements that they were allowed to put in place, that weren't high enough in my view. . >> reporter: abc news has confirmed that screener
8:13am
that let that firefighter on to a plane in orlando with a loaded gun has been removed from screening altogether. they take any incident like this, quote, very seriously. >> a lot of pressure on the tsa. all right, mark. thank you. we'll turn now to the search for two missing children in tennessee. that's intensifying this morning. an amber alert has been issued for a sister and brother ages 7 and 9. that haven't been seen since a fire destroyed their farmhouse. abc's clayton sandell have the latest. >> reporter: few clues this morning in a desperate search for this 9-year-old and her 7-year-old half-brother, a fire destroyed the unionville, tennessee, home where the children lived with their grandparents. both died in last sunday's blaze and at first everybody thought that the kids were killed, too. >> the children were last seen by a neighbor at 6:30, three
8:14am
hours before the fire actually broke out. we know that they were in close proximity of the home. within hours before the fire erupting. >> reporter: but after five days searching through ashes, police found no signs of chloe or found no signs of chloe or gage. gage's father said to the associated press, they don't think they burned up in the fire. on saturday, they issued an amber alert. >> it's particularly frustrating that, when you have children of tenders years like these two, you know that unless they are with someone who has no intention of harming them, they're very concerned that they have been in harm's way. >> reporter: the clock ticking. the police are now questioning everyone who knew the kids. including their parents who have extensive criminal records. but investigators say they have no suspects and aren't even sure they have a crime. >> the king in this case is, the origin of the fire, is it an accident?
8:15am
or intentional? >> reporter: questions so far, with no answers, and two small children still missing. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> and we're hoping those children are found. time now to switch gears, this is football sunday and finally, it's the real deal this time. the official nfl refs are back this after three weeks of chaos caused by those replacement refs culminating in this horrible call at monday night's packers/seahawks game. the replacement refs became national bad guys. now, one is speaking out to john muller. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. like most football fans i was ranting and raving about replacement refs. after hearing from one of them, it becomes clear, they're not monsters, they're imperfect human beings like the rest of us. >> wilson scrambles to keep it up. >> reporter: it was the play that changed everything, perhaps
8:16am
the worst and most controversial call. >> who did they give it to? >> touchdown! >> it's like a jennings interception. >> the call on the field stands, touchdown. >> reporter: the reaction was fast and furious. >> awful. look at the replay. >> reporter: this football fan didn't watch because he was on the field, mike, number 77, a replacement ref in the game speaks out for the first time. >> to see the game fall apart at the end, it was one of those things that makes you go back in the back room and cry a few tears. >> reporter: he had more experience than most of his fellow fill he ins. 13 years of division i college revving. >> you know someone asked me if it's a good call or a bad call it depends on where you live. the replacement refs were at mercy of the crowd. >> reporter: and the mercy of the nation. even on saturday night live. >> time is 2:5.
8:17am
